Setup not detecting EIDE DVD-ROM
Heres my scenario, ive downloaded the slackware iso(everything) and burnt as an image on a DVD with my DVD-ROM thats connected to my logic board via EIDE(ata-6).
Asus P5K SE Motherboard
Marvell 88SE6111 IDE Controller
1 x SATA-2 HD
1 x EIDE(DVD-ROM device connected)
Ive successfully booted the image, and loaded the kernel(hugesmp.s)
Partitioned the space on my (only) Hard drive being a SATA-2 connection
Ive entered the setup interface, and got as far as selecting the source media
However slack cannot detect my DVD-ROM with the image(which i assume contains the source media)
I've read elsewhere that the Marvell IDE controller is problematic, so i passed this option to the kernel when i boot = "hugesmp.s all-ide-generic"
But that does not help either.
so im stuck at this point, any advice much appreciated
